Santa Cruz, CA: Anarchists Attack KFC

attack of KFC, mission st.

Caught between our fleeting mortal lives and the fleeting "freedoms" allowed to us by the state, we have felt strong sorrow and disgust at the state of the world and our society. Last night, we decided to make tangible our despair.

Last night, we attacked the Kentucky Fried Chicken on Mission St. We think it's new, we're not entirely sure, but either way the sight of it bores us to death. Two stones cracked two windows and we melted back into the shadows. Property will never be worth more than the lives of living things. Solidarity with our poultry brethren; we may not be the same species, but we breath the same poison air.

We acknowledge that attacks like this do little to actually harm the infrastructure of capital or animal abuse. They are a great way, though, to become familiar with night action. We encourage all who feel a brooding discontent to find ways of expressing it. We cannot wait for a revolutionary situation; we must create that situation. This is just the beginning. We have begun.

War on capital!

yours in long-term low-intensity conflict,
yours for escalation,
autonomous rebels for social collapse

I like that the author(s) implied that this was mere practice, and not thinking it was some great action, which, I support all revolt anyway.

i think this is a stupid action...being that the vast majority of anarchists in s.f. are white, and the vast majority of fast food eaters in the mission are people of color this can be miscontrued as a attack against peeps of color, not cool. first educate then attack with workers on your side.

That's not a valid critique, who would think that it was an attack on the customers and particularly because of their color? Please people, being considerate is great but sometimes our imaginations seem to run away with us.

Thanks Feral Edge, you are right, i need to be more clear. We live in a white supremacist country, if white radicals attack a restaurant frequented by people of color it can be easily misconstrued, if the educational background is not attacking a bank on the other hand has more of a universal appeal:)

I think it was in santa cruz, not san fran...?

yes, this was in sc. nice start, and hey, a very articulate and forthright explanation of the attack - exciting stuff. hopefully future actions will actually halt a store's ability to conduct business altogether, at least temporarily.
